Media Education: Literacy, Learning and Contemporary Culture is an excellent book by scholar David Buckingham of the University of London. Though published in 2003, the ideas presented in the work are very current and important to both the education and digital media literacy world of today.

Buckingham's prose is so controlled and scholarly you almost miss it when he drops a bomb. To wit: "To a much greater extent than in conventional academic subjects, teacherly attempts at imposing cultural
